Cam Newton began throwing regulation-size footballs again during spring workouts, including a team livestream during minicamp in June. That was the first time the public had seen Newton throw since the Week 15 loss to New Orleans. He progressed from throwing to stationary targets one day, to shorter routes the next, and finally to intermediate routes 20-25 yards down the field.
Which brings us to the present, with Newton slated to be a full participant when training camp opens July 24 at Wofford College in Spartanburg.
As the story said, Newton struggled with “frustrating” shoulder soreness and tightness over the second half of last year, culminating with him sitting out the final two regular-season games. After the season, Newton had an arthroscopic procedure that was described as a “clean-out” rather than to repair any specific injury. It was said the cartilage damage was much less severe than originally suspected.
CAR TE Greg Olsen - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 13 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Greg Olsen struggled last week against the Seahawks with only two catches and 11 yards. While his yardage and reception numbers haven’t been impressive this season, he’s found the end zone in four of his past six games, making him a fairly consistent option in a season where it’s hard to get fantasy production out of the tight end position.
This week, Olsen will face a Buccaneers defense that has allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends this year. Expect Olsen to continue to get red zone looks and to have a better-than-average chance at scoring in a game that has shootout written all over it. We have him inside our top-10 ranking this week.
